Just wanted to say you should try the gotfob aud source. It is a little better than this one and only SB (remaining) of this show.
Reviewer: patkelleyPA - favoritefavoritefavorite - January 29, 2013
Subject: not really a great recording
the bass is a little washed out, and the keyboards, and sometimes Weir's guitar, come out of the wrong speaker. It's listenable, and it's clearly a fun show. But there are better recordings out there for this one.

Wonderful there is such a good-sounding board, complete with patches, still left up for us to enjoy - so please do! I'm going to stand up on my hind legs and vote this as the best '88 I've heard; the DL Series did oh so right in selecting this night for official recognition...

Set 1 devolves into a sort of 'suite', the tunes rapidly following each other towards the end of Let It Grow. Tonight Bobby is in much better form than the previous evening, especially with his Dylan tune of choice - bravo, Bob, for keeping it scaled-back. That To Lay Me Down is simply devastating.

Deconstructing Set 2 would require more superlatives than are available in the deadhead thesaurus....they open the door and invite us into the Hallways of Always with those opening twangs on Sugar Magnolia and close it again, our cup overflowing, at the end of the rainbow Daydream. This is cinematic in its scope and epic nature - something truly special this night was being rendered, and it's extraordinary to behold.

Subject: Nice show clean recording
For the post"In the Dark" period, it was a pretty tight show, with a decent set list.

It did remind me of how uninspired they were with the old jammin' though, is a 4:50 Fantasy more of a tease than a blessing.

But its better with'm than without him.

I remember at the time this was The show of the spring tour.Things were getting a bit more jammy and spacey in '88 than '87 .Fall '88 is really underrated -
